Douglas County leads Nebraska with more than 98-hundred COVID-19 cases. Officials say dozens of inmates at the Douglas County Jail have tested positive for the coronavirus. A news release from the county says 36 of 41 inmates in a single housing unit at the jail recently tested positive for the virus. The Douglas County Department of Corrections tested the inmates after learning last week that a contractor and two trustees at the jail had tested positive.
